Lamborghini Aventador Revs Up And Ignites: Video

Follow Jeff

Ah the Aventador.

The Lamborghini that seems to be happiest when it's sitting in a crowd, revving its engine, and burping fire out its backside. At least, that's the impression I get based on the many videos posted to YouTube featuring Aventador owners doing just that. There's a problem with this though, as it can put stress on the engine if you sit there long enough. Another side effect? Car-B-Q.

One Aventador owner in England found this out while sitting on London's Sloane Street, as this video from AsianNoise reveals. The owner of the Aventador in question was showing off a bit, as one does in such a car. Out back, the exhaust was doing its thing and the assembled masses were watching in awe. Then the inevitable happened... the rear fascia wanted to play the flame game, and quickly caught fire.

A few concerned folks eventually alerted the driver, who hopped out and attempted to extinguish the flames with a sweatshirt. Unless that sweatshirt is made of Argon gas, I don't see it working in your favor here. Also, that would be one weird sweatshirt.

The driver hops back into the car in attempt to pit the fire against horsepower and speed. It doesn't appear to be going well, and then the video cuts out. If anyone knows what happened to the car, we'd love to hear more in the comments below.
